CULTURE CAPITAL PROGRAM - VOTE 2804

The Culture Capital Program preserves and enhances Ontario's investment in cultural infrastructure. The Ministry works in partnership with the Ministry of Tourism to manage the cultural infrastructure development commitments of the province's $300 million, five-year capital infrastructure initiative - the Sports, Culture and Tourism Partnership program. The Sports, Culture and Tourism Partnership program, launched in 2001, has been extended to 2009.

The Ministry of Culture provides capital repair and rehabilitation funding to nine of its 14 agencies. This funding enables the Ministry's cultural attraction agencies to undertake repair and rehabilitation of existing infrastructure including: renovations, building code upgrades, health and safety improvements and statutory/regulatory compliance, to help them remain competitive and enhance the visitor experience.
